(一)當你有心結時,如何打開之 (2)

How do you undo the 'knots' in your life

Untitled Document

濟公活佛慈語:當你心有千千結的時候,你要告訴你自己,解鈴還須繫鈴人,
When you have thousands of knots in your heart, you must tell yourself: Whoever started the trouble should end it.

心中的障礙須自己去突破,再怎麼溝通不了的,也要試著去溝通。
The obstacles in mind must be overcome by oneself (yourself). You must try to communicate no matter how hard it is.

當你聽了許多的是是非非、毀毀謗謗之後,你還是要告訴你自己,要來道場,道場需要你。
After hearing plenty of right and wrong and defamation, you still have to tell yourself to go to the Tao society. Tao society needs you.

當你處在逆境考驗的時候,你要告訴你自己,要以樂觀、感恩的心態,來面對這種種的處境與困難。
When you are in adversity, you must tell yourself to confront these difficulties with a positive and grateful attitude.

當你與同修有分岐的時候,你要告訴你自己,辦上天的事,一定要同心同德,
When you have issues with your fellow practitioners, you must tell yourself to have some heart and same virtue with your fellows when carrying off matters from Heaven.

才能夠圓滿達成任務。當你與點傳師、前賢意見不合的時候,
Therefore, you can accomplish the missions successfully. When you have different opinions with Tao transmitting masters and the seniors,

你要告訴你自己,不管前賢對不對,你還是要尊重前賢、謹守佛規。為什麼?
you must tell yourself that you need to respect them and follow the rules and regulations of Tao whether the seniors are right or wrong. Why?

因為你固執己見,所以要先學低心下氣、圓融的心,以接受諫言。
Because you are stubborn and opinionated, so you need to learn to be humble, modest, and have an easygoing mind so as to accept suggestions.

故事
Story

有個小和尚常被師兄弟欺負,
The was a little monk who was constantly bullied by his senior brothers.

有一次與師兄弟大吵一架之後就被師父趕出寺院。
The was a little monk who was constantly bullied by his senior brothers. Once he had a big argument with his senior brother and was expelled from the monastery by his master.

小和尚無法理解,師兄弟們為何老是欺負他,更無法理解師父為何總是偏袒其他人。
The little monk simply not understand why the senior brothers would always bully him. He especially could not comprehend why the master would always be on their side.

離開寺院後,他萬念俱灰什麼事都不想做,成天在野外遊蕩將近一年之久。
After he left the monastery, he became dishearted with life and drifted aimlessly in the wilderness for more than a year.

有一天,小和尚來到一條小河邊, 看見一位老者坐在河邊的枯草上發呆,
One day the little monk came by a small river. He saw an elderly man sitting on the dry grass on the riverside and staring blankly.

小和尚走上前問:「您為何坐在這裡?」老者:「我無法過河」
The little monk stepped forward and asked: " Why are you sitting here?" The old man replied: " I am unable to cross the river."

小和尚:「這條河不深,應該很容易過去啊!」
The little monk replied: " This river is not too deep, crossing it should be quite easy"

老者:「河雖然不深,但是水裡的石頭做錯事情了。」小和尚:「石頭也會做錯事?」
The old man replied: " Although the river isn't too deep but the rocks in the river have done something wrong" The little monk asked further: " How could the rocks possibly have done something wrong?"

老者:「石頭上長滿青苔,一踩上去就會滑倒,所以我過不了河,他們不應該長出那麼多青苔啊!」
The old man replied: " The rocks are covered with green moss. Every time I step on them, I will slip and fall. This is why I am unable to cross the river. The rocks should not have green moss grown on them"

小和尚到水邊看了看,那些石頭果然長滿青苔,根本無法走。
The little monk had a look and agreed that the rocks were indeed fully covered with green moss and it wouldn't be possible to step on them to cross the river.

他對老者說:「老人家,何必怪石頭做錯事?只要我們在腳板上捆一些枯草,就不會滑了!」
The little monk said to the old man: " Why blame the rocks for any wrongdoing. All we need to do is cover our feet with some of those dry grass so that the rocks would not feel slippery.

老者聽完後與小和尚一同拔枯草捆在腳板上。在小和尚的幫忙下, 兩人輕鬆過了河。
The old man took the little monk's advice. Both covered their feet with dry grass. With the little monk's assistance, both were able to cross the river with ease.

接著老者嘆了一口氣說:「我已經 在這裡坐了一個時辰,一直在怨恨那些石頭做錯了事,阻止我過河,
The older man sighed and said, " I was sitting there for an hour and I could do was resenting those rocks for doing the wrong things and allowed that to stop me from crossing the river"

看來我只是責怪石頭,卻沒想辦法過河,這個想法本身也是一種錯誤!」
Looking back, all I did was blaming the rocks and not thinking of ways to cross the river. This attitude of mine in itself was a mistake.

小和尚聽完後被點醒,心結都被打開,
The little monk became enlightened when he heard the old man's final remark. The entangled knots in his heart were loosened.

日後遭遇困境知道先調整自己的心態,終於修成正果。
From that day onwards, whenever he would encounter a difficult situation, he would first examine his own attitude. He finally became successful in cultivating his life.

省思
Reflection

人之所以盲目追求一切,是因為不知「自心」具足一切,
The reason people blindly pursue everything is that they fail to understand that contentment lies in their hearts.

故不停往外面的世界攀緣;深怕自己不足、不夠,深怕別人輕視、批評,
They instead search outwardly and clamber onto unrealistic desires and possessions. They are deeply afraid that they are not good enough,

所以常常不自覺就跟人家比、跟別人走、跟境界轉,接著就迷失了自己。
do not have enough and that others will despise and criticize them. They compete and compare with each other, go with the flow, become influenced, and form part of the ever-changing environment. They become totally lost.

五祖弘忍為六祖惠能講《金剛經》講到一半時,六祖當下大徹大悟,
The fifth ancestor Hong Ren was discussing with the sixth ancestor Hui Neng chapters from the Golden Sutra. Halfway through the discussion, Hui Neng became enlightened.

道出:「一切萬法,不離自性。」再言:「何其自性,本自具足。」
He said: All dharmas are in and not separable from our own True Nature" He further said " Our True Nature is and has all that we required to satisfy our needs".

語出即講明自性本心的內涵。
This explains clearly the meaning of our True Nature, especially in the relation to self-possession, inner restraint, and self-control.

結論
Conclusion

厚德大帝慈語:
Words of wisdom by Senior Grand Master Kao:

◎上天疼愚笨老實修道的人,要耐得住;上天加福是逆來的,要感恩。
" God loves simple but honest Tao practitioners. We must endure our duties and responsibilities. God's blessing comes naturally and we must be grateful.

◎是非審之於己,毀譽聽之於人, 成敗安之於數,此智人也。
Wise people are those who :
- are able to determine right or wrong,
- are able to accept criticism from others but not easily influenced by them.
- are aware that success or failure depends on our state of mind ie whether it is calm and clear of confused or chaotic.
